Although I am not a portrait artist I am often honored by people who are willing to trust me enough to paint their loved ones. It is stressful process as I am so nervous about capturing their likeness as well as making everyone happy. I am not very far along but enjoying the process so far. Its so interesting as to how easily it is to miss the mark when doing a portrait. One eye shape off, a missed mouth expression often play into why the portrait doesn't work out. Keeping my fingers crossed as I continue on! And now I have booked another portrait commission, with four kids in the painting, OH NO!
